Whimsy Stamps April Rubber + Dies release!


Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps 
April new rubber + dies release BLOG HOP!  
 
If you've come here from Marley's blog, then you're on the right track.  If not, please start at Annika's blog to make sure you haven't missed anyone!

We have 13 fabulous new Whimsy Stamps stamps plus 2 new wonderful dies to show you today! These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. We also have our wonderful special guests joining us for this hop - Beate Johns, Deb Routledge, Jacque Beddingfield, Mindy Baxter and Minna Paajanen.

The Whimsy Stamps DT have been sneak peeking these fabulous stamps for the past 5 days, so if you missed them be sure to hop on over to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for some more inspiration!

Here is a full list of the wonderful new rubber stamps and dies being released today:

3 stamps from Crissy Armstrong
Big Comfy Cake ~ Come Fly With Me ~ Cupcake Bliss

3 stamps from Meljen's Designs
Curious Little Fairy ~ Fairy Toadstools ~ Little Fairy Friend

4 stamps from Kenny K
Biker Babe ~ Cheers Dude ~ Madison Attitude ~ Soho

3 stamps/sets from Raindrop Echo Designs
Everyday Mini Postage Stamps ~ Party Mini Letter Seals ~ Postcard Background


2 dies/sets from Raindrop Echo Designs
Mini Postage Die ~ Double Scallop Tag Die

The hop starts today (Wednesday April 13th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday April 20th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 6 different prize draws! We have not one but TWO grand prize draws, so two lucky hoppers will win a large selection of new release stamps. Grand Prize 1 will be for those who help us advertise the hop, and Grand Prize 2 will be for those who hop along with us. We also have 4 mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp!

I'm one of those prize stops!  Denise kindly let me give away the Party Mini Letter Seals Sentiment set.  How awesome is that?  To enter for a chance to win this set, just enter your information into InLinkz. You do NOT need a blog to enter - you can leave the URL blank and just fill in the Name and Email.

For my blog hop creation I have used all of Crissy's new images!  I've used Big Comfy Cake, Come Fly With Me, and Cupcake Bliss.  It was so fun merging them, but it was kind of scary to color because I didn't want to have to start all over if I messed up, lol.  I colored the images with Twinkling H2Os because we're still in the process of moving and the little jars are just more convenient to use right now versus the reinkers.  I've also used a sentiment from the Party Mini Letter Seals.  I stamped the sentiment onto felt, and it actually looks much better in person than it does in this terrible photo.  I kept the card simple to show off these darling images!  Plus, there was no more room to put anything else, lol. 

Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Big Comfy Cake, Come Fly With Me, and Cupcake Bliss and sentiment from the Party Mini Letter Seals; Medium: Twinkling H2Os; Paper: MME; Accessories/tools: ribbon, pearls, felt

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Iris's beautiful blog!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new release!  Don't forget to enter in the candy draw below!
